Plastic Free Oldham

What is Plastic Free Oldham? 

A space I created to help the Oldham community to chat and connect locally and have an interest or want to know or share thoughts, ideas and experiences with fellow Oldhamer’s about a plastic free journey, no matter the level. Another important part was finding where to find and shop plastic free. I created a Facebook group Plastic Free Oldham quite some time ago and I have also added a Facebook page. I have gone further and created a Instagram and Twitterpage as well for Plastic Free Oldham. Aiming at making it easy and all one topic in the Oldham area for you. 

First this will have lots of different local businesses that offer plastic free. I believe all businesses can offer something plastic free whether they realise it or not. Plastic Free Oldham isn’t about us and them. It is about supporting small business in Oldham and showing the people of the community if a business can do one switch then so can you. It is a community effort that requires community action to achieve positive community change.

I intend on sharing lots of positive community activities and positive impacts and more. You are welcome to join and follow us and share you experiences and plastic free triumphs.
